XX c. Revolutions in Arts and Thoughts (Lecture Programme)

In the historical perspective the twentieth century has occurred to be full of events like no other century before. It was full of social conflicts, armed clashes and revolutions, tensions of innovative concepts. For Western Europe, the twentieth century has become the century of globalization, capitalization and commodification; for the Republics of the Soviet Union it has primarily become the history of communist ideals, of a social experiment generated by them as well as the collapse of the epoch itself.

The twentieth century has created fertile basis for a conversation not only about the transformation of social fields, the changes on the political map, the ups and the downs of economic systems, but of many other topics. The National Art Museum will traditionally focus on art and culture implications. From the very first day art as if being a mirror has been given an artistic form to collective representation and it has vividly reacted to the emergence of new ideological constructs. Individualization of vision, borrowing of oriental motifs in the West and Western ones – in the East, the avant-garde of the first and second waves, the birth of mass culture, the metamorphosis of an art work from a classical painting to a video installation: and that is a small part of the information involved in a series of lectures on the twentieth century at the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus.

The cycle consists of 18 author lectures prepared by the museum staff and the invited researchers as well.
